Conwy Castle, a 21-tower medieval fortress in Conwy, is apparently the most beautiful castle you’re going to find on the entire continent. It’s surrounded by high fortified walls which stretch for three-quarters of a mile, and you can walk a complete circuit around its battlements. 

The castle was originally commissioned by King Edward I in the thirteenth century, and his architect Master James of St George built the whole thing in just four years. And it’s seriously well preserved, with the most intact set of medieval royal apartments in the whole of Wales. 

When you visit, make sure to climb the winding staircases for that full fairytale castle experience. And if you’re after even more castle action, the ten most beautiful in Europe are as follows: 

1. Conwy Castle, Wales
2. Trakai Island Castle, Lithuania
3. Alcázar of Seville, Spain
4. Bran Castle, Romania
5. Egeskov Castle, Denmark
6. Eilean Donan Castle, Scotland
7. Château de Chambord, France
8. Predjama Castle, Slovenia
9. Kylemore Abbey, Ireland
10. Castel del Monte, Italy
